Not been on site in a while . Always do domestic now but it’s looking quiet at moment . Thinking of going back house bashing . A mate of mine just skimmed a two bed plot for £770 took around 18 bags . That sound about right . He’s not sure of his sqm price . It took 2 of them 2.5 days to skim it . Not great is it .
But why did you get that money? Who priced job etc?

I was even looking into Tendering for some new Build sites but for what i can gather Time you’ve paid out lads and materials you average £400 a plot . Is it worth all the hassle and stress .
Is it fuk worth it . There's too many bellends out there creating a right fukin g mess lol

I know that many site lads who've gave up trying to make it pay on site and work on £130 a day.

It's gone bad for all trades.
If you've been plodding round on domestics for years then house bashing would destroy most of them . I'm used to it as you are and it's the norm for us and many other lads. It takes years of getting used to .

Is sad really . I always believe you get paid what your worth . Never been shy of a good hard days work . But it’s starting to take the piss now . Before you know it they’ll be blaming brexit .

I know lads who earn a killing aswell.
It's down to your skill set at the end of the day.

To earn a killing you have to kill yourself it seems. What’s a killing on site skimming? £1500 a week? Would need to be £30k a week to justify how f**k*d your body will end up

2 brother's own a small drylining firm in Cumbria bought 2 new McLaren's a few years ago.
That's money mate.
That’s contracting for you . Like i say I’ve thought about it . I’ve got the contacts and some money behind me to give it a go but I don’t deal well with stress . Couldn’t cope with lads moaning . Site Managers moaning . Putting s**t work right etc.. I wouldn’t sleep at night .
